This time, the food range had been expanded to include and highlight Philippine Spirits.

“This event was an opportunity for us to meet some of our farmers, processors and retailers of premium organic, natural and indigenous products and spirits that reflect our culinary culture which is at par with international standards,” said Agriculture Undersecretary for Administration and Finance Bernadette Romulo-Puyat who is also chairman of the National Organic Agricultural Board (NOAB).
